1.Rurener Tool Presentation www.rurener.eu [email_address] Supported by: RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality2. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Context Renewable energysources andenergy savingsare a great asset, something to take advantage of and a solution to diminish climate change. To develop sustainable energy strategies is a main challenge forrural municipalities.Combining the use of renewable energy sources and the adoption of energy saving practices, local communities would profit from anunique opportunityfor theirdevelopmentandcompetitiveness. 3. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality The projectNetwork of small RURal Communities for ENERgetic Neutrality (acronymRURENER ) is financed byIEE (Intelligent Energy Europe)programme on behalf of the European Commission.RURENER aims at improving the energetic neutralityof rural European communities and to establish a network among them. RURENER Network brings together 2 types of members: Members of the RURENER Consortiumfrom: France, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Greece and Romania. Small European rural communitiescommitted to reach energetic-neutrality. 4. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Promoteenergetic-neutralityand innovativelocal development. Give support to small rural communities to set upintegrated energy policy, by providing methodological and technical support and facilitating experience sharing and mutualisation of resources and tools. Stimulateenergy efficiency actionsin rural areas, through public and private investment for Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Rational Use of Energy (RUE), and use of local resources. Objectives 5. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Create tools and methods to achieve energetic neutrality: defining anappropriate modelto reachenergetic neutrality,to be adapted to each specific case thanks to a modular structure. Establish and maintain anetworkto enhance communities energetic performances: facilitating experience sharing based on on-lineknowledge transferpractices; supportingtwinning experiencesamong member communities and providingexperts mentoringat European level to guide participating communities towards energetic neutrality. Concrete actionsfor participating communities: stimulate energy efficiency actions in rural areas, throughpublic and private investmentfor renewable energy sources, rational use of energy, and use of local resources. Training and dissemination:assuring the sustainabilityand the capitalisation of project results through RURENER website and specific webtools, Practical Guidelines, Training in the field, European and local events and meetings. Activities 6. Who can join Rurener Network? To become members of theNETWORK, villages and small towns must respect the definitions of the communities, targets of the RURENER project activities.RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Rurener Network 7. Who can join Rurener Network? Rural communitiesare defined as follows: communities or joint communities in a rural area with around 350 inhabitants/km or 15.000 inhabitants in total, who are willing to use energy in a mostsustainable and efficient way. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Rurener Network 8. Whybecome members of the NETWORK ? The participation in the NETWORK, built through RURENER project, guarantees for local communities a strong support from PARTNERS tomake progress toward energetic neutrality .RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Rurener Network 9. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality The main benefits for local communities are: Experiencesharing and poolingof resources and tools; Accessto all projectinformationand online tools developed by RURENER; Free participationto training in the field of renewable energy sources and rational use of energy; Support and participation in/organization of national and regionalexhibition/conferencesor seminars and local energy days, organized in every country during the project lifetime; 10. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Model forSWOT(strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of the community in terms of energy savings and implementation of renewable energy sources; S upport forcommunicationinside the community, to the citizens and outside of community to the important regional and national administrative personalities that can help the community development in the field of RES; S upport to identifyfinancing sourcesand to obtain financial support; S upport for planning theexpansion of existing RESand/ or transition to a new renewable energy source; 11. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Help to design amore efficient use ofenergy; P resentation of communities activities on the projectwebsite in English and in its national language and on the communityweblog; O pportunities to establish twinning, inside the RURENER NETWORK, with other communities from different countries. 12. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Roadmap 13. The only way to achieve an integrative energy policy at the local level is to lead anaction plan. It allows to anticipate, coordinate, share short and long terms vision about how you can drive acomprehensive policyaccording to your means and external support.RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Local Action Plan 14. Target group Small local communities(direct target): Through their representatives (mayors) Through the inhabitants Indirect targetgroups: RES investors: Regional and national organizations Policy makers RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Communication and participation 15. Alocal diagnosisis the original task when starting to reach energy neutrality! It allows to knowwhere we arebefore planingwhere we want to go!You can call it a point 0 or a State of the Art, no matter the name, it is generally you first step! RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Communication and participation 16. A model forSWOT analysisof the community in terms of energy savings, implementation of renewable energy sources and socio-economic situation is available for beneficiaries .SWOT analysis is a strategic planning method used to evaluate theStrengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities,andThreatsinvolved in a project or in a business venture. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors That are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective.

RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality The Questionnaire A Questionnaire will be submitted and the answers will be input to the SWOT analysis. The purpose of the Questionnaire is to initiallyassessnot only thewillingnessbut also thecapabilities and progressso far (starting point) toward energetic neutrality at Local level. 23. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Capacity Building Searching for a financialor atechnical partner , on the basis of different criteria: Financial Technical 24. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Evaluation Within RURENER the communities (network members) need to evaluate theirstarting pointandprogressestoward energetic-neutrality. For this purpose, RURENER created ameasure gridfor the network members. 25. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Evaluation A basic technique of energy planning is to state of a given energy system in a certain time and energy balance is such a tool. Energy balancegives a simple and clear view of different energy carriers and different stages of conversion between the energy level and can be used forcomparison reasonsfrom year to year 26.
